Contributor Glenn Zinkus reports:

Weather Outlook Across Central and Eastern Oregon:
The hot weather comes to an end, with a cooler than usual weekend before warming to seasonal temperatures midweek. The current temperatures in the 80s throughout much of the region will cool to the high 60s/70 on the weekend and into early next week. There will also be some windy days in the high desert, the Gorge, and Eastern Oregon on Friday, and through the weekend in some locations such as the Gorge.

Lower Deschutes River: Except for a report from a friend who floated downstream from Warm Springs, the salmon fly action is waning. Redsides have been bombarded for the past month, and easily accessible sections have been hit hard. That said, a friend did well on dry stoneflies during the afternoon. There was also a lot of later caddis activity and PMD activity through the day.

Upper Deschutes River: The upper Deschutes is now open. I’ve always done well nymphing PTs in and around the log jams and pools during the first several weeks within opening.

Haystack Reservoir: The reservoir shows as 100% full and remains a good fishing location. With the longer days and warmer temperatures, bass and warmwater species will start to get active.

Lake Billy Chinook: Reports are that kokanee are scattered through the lake, but diligently studying a fish finder and searching by trolling will get anglers to the fish.

Crooked River: I am hearing of some good caddis activity on the Crooked. When the afternoon hatches are not coming off, use Sparkle Pupas, Puparazzi and Micro Mayflies, Zebra midges and Split Case nymphs.
